If you want more suggestions, I basically just modified fellway's build. (Great parts choice, by the way.)
I swapped the Node 202 for the Node 304. Still a compact case, but it leaves a little more room for cooling. This also let me exchange the Silverstone for a C7 (I'm partial to Cryorig) and the PSU to the highly acclaimed SuperNova G3.

Why get rid of the SSD?
I'd go with the second one. It has the nicest case. Also, I think that ram will look nice with the mobo and everything else.
Otherwise, they're all pretty much identical. Great parts choices!
Where/how did you get that decal? Looks awesome.
More pictures, please?
Everything looks stunning. Excellent work.
Great pictures, and great build.
Perfection. Excellent job. Wow.
Super clean., Nice work!
Looks awesome. That 1070 is so big and beefy. I feel like it's gonna beat me up and take my lunch money.
Love the aesthetic. More pictures?
That's absolutely insane. More pictures please!
Way to go all out. Looks great!
That's awesome. I love seeing people breath new life into old machines!
Now that I think of it, you might wanna go with a higher wattage power supply. That 980 TI is a power-hog.
Wow. Yeah, I think you'll be good.
Oh my god, that would be rad.
At your budget, do yourself a favor and get an SSD. You could get a 500GB SSD for your OS and some core programs and then get a larger HDD to use for file storage.
Agreed. Definitely go with that Ryzen build. It looks awesome.
Looks good to me. You got some great deals. What are you going to use for storage?
That's the exact reason I didn't go with the 1060. Way too expensive right now.
That build was actually for a friend, not me. My personal build is here. He says the 1050ti is treating him well.
Looks awesome. Nice work!
Your motherboard only has Realtek HD audio, unfortunetely. Because of that, you have to install Realtek HD Audio drivers.
If you more/different options, you'd have to install a new sound card.
I'd put it below. I've never heard of anyone putting one on or above.
The M65 mouse is unbelievable. Great price, too. The Glaive is a bit too busy in my opinion, and Razer drivers are obnoxious. I think the G502 is weirdly shaped as well.
I'd go with the M65 if I were you.
Definitely go with a better processor out of the gate. It's a lot easier to add more ram later. I think 8GB would be just enough for your needs for a bit.
Looks good to me. Enjoy!
I love it. Building on a budget is so much fun.
You got some crazy deals. (and I thought I was good on a budget...)
I love the use of those 4:3 monitors. I also use one in my main rig.
Awesome battlestation, man.
I love Vostros. I did a build with one myself not too long ago.
Awesome work! Looks nice!
Nice build. How is it having the secondary monitor above instead of beside?
Wow... I just realized you have 31 builds. And I thought 10 was a lot...
Nice choice on parts, and nice build!
I love seeing Ubuntu builds. Nice work!
I actually love that old retro look, ahaha.
That's awesome. I love budget builds, they're so much fun. I've built quite a few. You got some crazy deals, Nice work!
Why 32GB of ram? Seems like overkill.
Cool build though. Fit a lot of power into that case.
Thank you! I also love that aesthetic.
The XBOX wireless dongle inside the case looks pretty sweet.
Looks like you got a sweet deal! Very solid PC.
Awesome work, man. I'm also rocking my trusty old 8320 with a 1070, hahah. Throw an SSD in that bad boy when you can, it'll make a world of a difference.
Gorgeous looking build. Really nice work for your first. Nice job on the parts-list as well. Think about upgrading to an SSD sometime in the future, the difference between it and a HDD is astounding.
Wow. G o r g e o u s. Awesome work. I love BOTW.
Love it. Looks great. What's pixeled out in the middle of the desk?
Congrats on the feature! Very unique build.
Wow, that's awesome. Great work, man.
Wow, that's insane ahahahah.
Awesome build, man. You got some great deals.
Where did you get that 1070 deal?
I'm sure the stuff he's doing is only CPU intensive. If you're not doing as much gaming, you don't need an insane GPU anyway.
